I totally agree with Vimes! If only I had the cash then I would spend much of them on books. haha! Anyway, is the Percy Jackson series worth reading? Didn't like the movies much, but I'm willing to give the books a try. 

 

I have read the Selection series by Kiera Cass. I loved the characters. Waiting to get my hands on The Prince (book 3)

I am currently reading City of Lost Souls (Mortal Instruments series). Pretty good, too. 

 

And my bff mentioned Divergent. It's all she talks about lately so I'm guessing it is good as well.

Divergent is one of those books you read and think "this is pretty cool" and then 6 months later you think "actually, it wasn't that great". It's okay, but there are plenty of better books to spend your time with.

I have to disagree with that one, I have loved Divergent, and even enjoyed a re-read, which is unusual for me. I wasn't keen on the end of the series, but I'd still recommend Divergent. :)

Insurgent was worse, to be honest. I have yet to read Allegiant but I hear mixed views.

Insurgent improved for me on a second listen. Allegiant has disappointed me.

I quiet injoyed the Percy Jackson books, and I don't read a lot of YA books. So I would give the first one a try littlemissbookworm. The books are hugely different from the movies. They left a lot of the history and plowing out of the movies and down right changed other things.
